Since the Manchester United defeat, a game in which only N`Golo Kante did himself justice, there has been a clamour on Vital Chelsea relating to Diego Costa being dropped for the FA Cup semi-final, against Spurs, on Saturday.

There`s no doubting that, at Old Trafford, Diego Costa gave a below-par performance, but then again he wasn`t the only player that could be accused of that.

But, it seems that the Vital Chelsea membership have become increasingly frustrated by the Brazilian-born Spanish international.

Since the Chinese Super League malarkey the accusation being bandied about is that Diego Costa appears to look disinterested, some members are even suggesting his disinterest is having an effect on the remainder of the team, with some even suggesting that Chelsea are giving the opposition the advantage by playing with only ten-men, a little harsh in my opinion.

Against Manchester United, Diego Costa had trouble holding the ball up, his passes were going astray and he became embroiled in a running battle with Marco Rojo.

But you could argue that with Hazard and Pedro shackled by Herrera and Darmian, Diego Costa didn`t get the service he required.

But, with the Spurs game coming up, a game where we have to get back on track, what would you do?

Would you, even though Antonio Conte has stated he`s happy with the contribution Diego Costa is giving, drop our top-scorer, knowing what kind of message that would give out to Spurs?

Would you be tempted to opt for an attacking trio of Willian, Hazard and Pedro?

Or, would you throw caution to the wind and give Michy Batshuayi the chance to shine on the big stage?
